Looking Good BBC
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Preseason schedule began in earnest last night and several Gophers showed off. Many of these players will still be in a fight to make the final roster, but its nice to see them making waves early.

Briean Boddy-Calhoun

The Cleveland Browns cornerback is a lock to make the final roster and made a really impressive stop on 4th and goal to get the Browns the ball back last night against the New Orleans Saints:

De’Vondre Campbell

The Atlanta Falcons linebacker made a great interception last night against the Miami Dolphins.

He spend some time talking to the media after the game as well:

Kj Maye

The New England Patriots wide out is not likely to make the final cuts for the 53-man roster. But he will have one hell of a memory from the first preseason game at least.

Maxx Williams

We don’t have any highlights for you, but Maxx was back in action last night after returning from a rare knee surgery. And he was making a few nice plays for the Baltimore Ravens as well.

Damarius Travis

The undrafted free agent for the New England Patriots did what he needed to do last night in his first NFL preseason game to progress towards making the roster. Played on the kickoff coverage team and looked good.

Jalen Myrick

The 7th round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars ended up with two tackles in his first preseason game against the Patriots last night, but otherwise didn’t do anything impressive.

MarQuies Gray

The Miami Dolphins tight end had a good preseason opener recording three catches for 26 yards on one drive in the first quarter last night.

Ra’Shede Hageman, Issac Fruechte, Marcus Sherels, Jack Lynn andHendrick Epke all saw some action last night but did not have any notable performances.

More Gophers will see their first preseason action in the next few days including Eric Decker, Eric Murray, Cedric Thompson and Jonah Pirsig.
